The planes you have are about 60-80 years old. Many years ago friends and I took a whole raft of various models of Norris smoothers and compared them back to back at the same time in the same room.
This was before the Internet and the planes were in much better shape than your average ebay find.
The differences are subtle. but the consensus was that the pre-war Norris work and feel better than the post wars. YMMV
